, governor jindal, senator rubio and senator john mccain on the stump for romney at the same time. john avalon is in the battleground state of ohio. so john, it's a cavalcade of republican stars. will it help romney? >> they hope so, carol. i mean, this is sort of that last-minute stampede. the romney camp taking the major surrogates in the swing states and that's what they should be doing. this is a game of inches, a war of attrition and the swing states every vote could matter. they put out everything they got. there are six days left in the election. you don't leave anything in the locker room. >> ohio voters, do they have sandy on their minds at all? >> well, there's definitely been bad weather as you may be able to tell throughout ohio all the of sandy and the storm is very dissipated. we have gone to the election polling places open for early election and still packed. no sign of a falloff on that because of the weather. the debates about the economy. the campaign having a tussle right now over chrysler and gm. when biden and clinton koim to youngstown they slammed mitt romney for
is working hard, and frankly has to work harder than he did in 2008. he won new hampshire over john mccain by a 10% lead. right now, polls show he has a slight lead, but statistically, the race is tied up between him and mitt romney. and that is why this really pretty small battleground state, the electoral votes, over 270 are needed, is getting a lot of attention from both candidates. here at this rally, president obama -- he talked about fees that the governor put in place, while he was in charge of the state. here is what the president said. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher fees for milk. there were higher fees for blind people who needed to get a certificate that they were blind. he raised fees to get a birth certificate, which would have been expensive for me. >> reporter: so that is a line, fred, that got some laughter here from his crowd of supporters, was not well received. no surprise, by the romney campaign. a spokesperson calling the attack laughable, saying "as governor mitt romney worked with democrats to close a 3 billion deficit, balanced budget by cuttin
, and essentially, it trounced john mccain's network. we were talking about contacts, volunteers, get out the vote machine. now, you bring up this point, and i thought it was interesting. you say he didn't really need all of that because there was enough voter enthusiasm and bush fatigue to put him over the top anyway, but you make the point here that you say the ground game, a superior ground game from this president, is absolutely critical. why the difference this go-round? >> well, the political rule of thumb is that your ground game, your field organization, can get you probably about two points above what you're polling or above what you would otherwise get. this is going to be a very close election. a lot of polls are showing it tied nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even wit
, the african-americans in that city. governor romney has to do better in the suburbs than john mccain did. in cleveland, the president gets a huge boost from the democrats, minority voters and cuyahoga county, like county, the suburbs, key battleground there. i'm back here in the cincinnati area, like to retrace steps from prior campaigns. when you came here late in 2004, you could tell the scene was out of the kerry campaign and the george w. bush was starting to take off. four years ago, hamilton county, normally republican, has to be republican for romney to win. when you came here four years ago, no doubt mccain campaign was on life support and the president carried this county four years ago. so in going around this morning, i can tell you this, both sides are working extra hard, the obama campaign concedes the romney campaign is doing much better than the mccain campaign. governor romney will be in this area, not cincinnati, but to the north of here tonight. we're told republicans expect some 35,000 people at that rally. if that kind of a number shows up, let's get ready for a long
. but it's not as big as the one he had over john mccain four years ago. of all the swing states, ohio could be the most important. no one had won the presidency without the buckeye state since 1960, and a brand new cnn/orc poll shows the candidates there are in a statistical dead heat. 50% of likely voters favor president obama while 47% support mitt romney. an nbc/wall street journal/maris poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. it's a tight race in florida as well. a poll shows obama leading by just two points, but a mason dixon poll gives romney the edge. 51% of likely voters say they'll vote for the republican candidate, while 45% say they'll vote for obama. so another state that could be a make or break state for both campaigns, we're talking about colorado now, which is home to nine electoral votes. in 2008, obama won that state. but in the past, it has favored republicans. kyung lah joins us from englewood, colorado, where mitt romney will be holding a rally later on today. nearly 1.5 million people have already voted in colorado there by mail-in, early voting,
